During his early career, he struggled to find roles—and especially to find roles that paid enough for him to live comfortably. During this period in his life, he stayed in the guest house of his manager for some time. IN between auditions for film and television roles, he even helped babysit his manager’s children!
He can drop his accent at will
Chris Hemsworth was raised from birth in Australia. However, Hemsworth received extensive professional dialect training that has given him the skill and ability to drop his accent entirely when a film or television role demands it. He also studied “American English” at Screenwise Film & TV School in Australia. This skill is considered particularly desirable because it allows the actor to take on roles that his accent might otherwise compromise.
He was on the Australian version of Dancing with the Stars.
